It’s a new year, a leap year so my third year of taking a photo a day is Project 366.
On New Year’s day, I awoke and once it was light looked out the window to see this sight. N’s 14 ft trampoline had been blown from the middle of the garden (it’s big) on top of the fence at the back. It’s pretty wrecked, frame, leg facing the wrong way etc. I was pretty confident it would have stayed in its place given it hasn’t moved all autumn or winter. It stayed through the whole blustery day, but one big gust in the middle of the night must have done it.
The Saturday after new year, the OH was out at another shoot, and it was a hideous day weatherwise. We needed to get out though, so headed to Witney to do some pottery painting. N was quite into it, although he was finished after about 10 minutes. Mine took somewhat longer. I love doing it, but it’s hard to know when to stop and what design to do.
On Sunday it was the most beautiful sunset. I don’t notice many of them, unlike sunrises which I take a lot of photos of. But I was cooking, looked out the window and spotted it in my car window.
On Monday, I didn’t take many photos because it was back to work. But while out at lunchtime, I spotted these flowers – so pretty. I really should buy more flowers for the house (and to photograph!)
On Tuesday morning I had a panic that we couldn’t find the reading book that N had brought home over Christmas. Needless to say he hadn’t read it – refusing because it was boring, We found it and he was sent home with this book. More dull books, but he managed to read all of it. The first book he did so.
On Wednesday we had a wandering child. By the time I went up to bed I found him there. He’s too heavy for me to be moving in his sleep now, so I just left him there. The OH usually moves him if he spots him earlier but it was too late for that. One benefit is that he doesn’t seem to get up as early – I don’t think he hears his dad go out early when he’s not in his own room.
On Thursday the drive to work saw some beautiful skies.
Friday after school, we had a frantic rush around. A brief photoshoot with his best friend for their joint party birthday cake, dentist check up for me, and then quickly into the supermarket to pick up a couple of things. N’s obsessed with his camera at the moment, and is taking it everywhere. We’ve no cable for it, the pictures it takes are rubbish but it’s great that he enjoys using it. I need to get him a proper camera because my compact that he usually has a go with, seems to have gone walkies somewhere…along with my tripod. No idea where they are.
On Saturday it was a day of party prep and driving around sorting things out. My best friend sent me a crochet blanket pack for Christmas, so I’ve been doing a bit each night. But I’ve got to the final row of green, only to find I’m about a metre short. Guess there’ll be no crochet until Monday when I can get into the wool shop at lunchtime. You can also see my muck up – can’t believe I managed to cock up twice. I couldn’t be bothered to go back and correct it as I’ll be the one using the blanket. It’s so annoying when you notice it too late. This is going to be the first blanket I’ve actually completed.
